Metal cabinets can be found in almost every mechanic shop, race car garage, and car enthusiast`s home. They are strong, durable, beautiful and expensive. Metal garage cabinets can be constructed from various metals including aluminum, steel or stainless steel, and can come painted, unpainted, powder coated or polished. The main advantage of utilizing metal cabinets is strength and durability. Metal cabinets can come free standing, rolling or can be mounted to walls like the other styles. However metal garage cabinets have much greater load carrying capacities that can exceed 1000 lbs per cabinet.
Real estate professionals point out that well-designed garage cabinets add to a home`s value in two ways. First, like all "improvements," they are inherently valuable to a buyer -- if the buyer can use them. And who ca not use storage solutions? Perhaps more important, it helps "de-clutter" the garage itself while helping to hide items that would otherwise clutter the house -- the kitchen, the utility room, the bathroom or closets generally. Crowded storage inside a house is a serious negative to potential buyers, so having storage, even in the garage, is a huge plus.
Remember the last time you walked though a house as a potential buyer? Imagine opening the door from the house to the garage and finding clean and generous garage cabinets. In different sizes. Some with doors, some open shelving. And everything stored away, neatly. Nice, eh? Now imagine opening the same door into the garage and seeing storage solutions composed of boxes stacked on top of other boxes, tools leaning against the wall and piles of sports equipment, off-season clothing and other "stuff" just strewn around. Clearly the first picture is more attractive. But, as you think about buying the house, how much more would you pay for the first house, the one with the well-organized garage space?
What type of garage cabinets will add the most value? The answer to that question is two-fold. The first has to do with the inherent attractiveness, quality and style of the cabinets themselves. And the second has to do with flexibility and how well the storage solutions match with what a new buyer will likely want.
The hard plastic garage cabinets are very easy to mount and install, very durable and easily fit into any budget. The pegboard cabinets can be a home to smaller items, and steel cabinets let you store all the heavy stuff. The choice of the material and their colour can also add a little elegance to your garage. Watch out for jealous neighbours. The pegboard cabinets can also hold hooks inside their doors for the tools that get used frequently. This saves you from hassle of searching for them when you just want to get the job done!
Cabinets are made of different materials like wood, metal and plastic. The material that you select for your cabinets depends on what you intend to use them for and the moisture conditions inside your garage in different seasons. If you go for wood, there is a choice among particleboard, MDF and plywood. Plywood is the most moisture resistant but for a smoother finish; you require putting laminates on them. MDF is the best choice if there is temporary moisture problem in your garage. If you are going for custom garage cabinets, you can mix and match the material according to their use and finalize the look which suits your garage, the best.
